A New Iraq Poll

A very interesting new poll of Iraqi attitudes was out yesterday. Laura Ingraham was discussing it on her show, and the Washington Times saw it news worthy, but I really didn't see any other mention of it. I wonder why?

Could it be the overall positive news was somehow not consistent with the main story line about the Iraq disaster? We certainly wouldn't want positive news on the day of President Bush's Inaugural would we?

Anyway, have a read through it. Apparently 80% of Iraqis are planning on voting in the upcoming election. Further, over 60% are optimistic about their country's future, and a slim majority - 51% - believe religion does not have a role to play in the government. Overall, it sounds like good news.
